Praise for The Land of Flickering Lights

A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice
An Amazon Best Book of the Month (History)

"A sweeping diagnosis of the nation's political ills . . . Stitched together with assurances that room for redemption still exists."--New York Times Book Review

"A Colorado senator sees the country at a historic turning point . . . A strident critique of our current rancorous, ineffective government that has betrayed the Founders' visions and is 'desperately out of sync' with the nation's needs . . . He proposes four values that can lead us into the future: freedom to rise, which requires decent health care, equitable tax policies, and a safety net for the vulnerable; freedom from ignorance, which requires strong public schools and financial support for students; freedom from violence, including the 'insidious violence' flourishing on social media; and freedom to govern ourselves, which requires citizen engagement and participation in public life . . . A forceful argument that patriotism, hard work, and belief in the common good can revive a prosperous and powerful democracy."--Kirkus Reviews

"It's a campaign book, yes, but it's a smart and substantive one."--Daily Beast
